Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to my blog, all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.

I am very pleased to say I won the last Throwback
Thursday Challenge.

Because I was not blogging last week I missed 
the Throwback Thursday Challenge no 8 which
started last Thursday, but all is not lost as the
challenge runs for a month.
Now Bibiana wants to see Mother's Day creations,
but it's not compulsory, as you may post anything
you have posted before.
As my own Mother passed away sadly 12 years 
ago just after I started making cards, I'm afraid I
haven't a Mother's Day card, so I found this card
that I had posted HERE and it has a picture of my
Mother when she was a young woman on it.
She always loved to decoupage flowers around 
pictures in picture frames, so I thought this 
creation of mine appropriate.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are from the Heartfelt Creations
Burst of Splendor pad.
I decoupaged the flowers round my Mother's
picture, and in the corner.
I coloured the base cards with Wild Honey, and
Peeled Paint Distress Inks.

Thank you for your visit, and the lovely 
comments you make.
I very much appreciate them all.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the Throwback
Thursday Challenge No 8.
